Ferguson vs Gaethje – It’s About to Go Down
The interim UFC lightweight championship will be on the line in the main event of UFC 249 tonight, as Tony Ferguson risks his 12-fight winning streak against one of the most feared fighters in the 155-pound weight class, Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje. With a combined 17 post-fight performance bonuses, Ferguson and Gaethje have thrilled fans like no other duo over the last several years, defeating the likes of Donald Cerrone, Anthony Pettis and Edson Barboza. And now with a title on the line, expect to see the best from the best as these top contenders collide. Plus, the co-main event will see another world championship up for grabs, as Henry Cejudo defends his bantamweight crown for the first time against one of the greatest 135-pounders to ever strap on the gloves, Dominick Cruz.
